One of my client’s husbands loves his little guinea pigs. She had me make a custom Treasure Buddy pillow for him so that she could put a gift card in it for his birthday. This specific project is a great example of an animal appliquéd onto a rectangular pillow. He loved it so much that she said he had tears in his eyes! That made me so happy.
Debbie’s custom order was a super cute idea. She requested my original cat design with embroidered eyes and nose for her young grand-daughter. Additionally, she wanted a small mouse to fit inside the Treasure Buddy’s pocket. I gladly accepted the challenge.
Here is what Debbie wrote when she received her items: “I love the custom cat you made for my granddaughter! It’s just beautiful and I know she’s going to love it, too. Thank you so much for embroidering eyes and a nose for us (instead of the buttons); I know my son and daughter-in-law will appreciate that touch. But the best part, of course, was that mouse!! So cute, and just perfect for the zippered compartment. I also LOVED how it perfectly coordinated with the fabric on the cat’s face. I know my granddaughter is going to spend many hours playing with this cat and mouse, and I have a feeling this toy will become a family heirloom. Thanks again!”
My son’s preschool was having a Teddy Bear Parade. What a fun idea! When I asked him which bear he would bring, he said, “I want a robot.” Knowing that he did not personally have a robot I asked him what we should do. He quickly replied, “Mommy can make it!” I guess he knows me well. This is how it turned out.
